This is the best cake I have ever tasted and my favorite recipe. You can adapt it to fit many flavors of cake and use it for wedding cakes or stacked cakes. This is a recipe for a cake extender...it will get you more cake mix out of 1 box mix! Add chocolate chips to it, espresso powder to the water for a mocha cake or different flavorings in place of the vanilla...It is AMAZING!
- 1 box white cake mix
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 cup of sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
In a separate bowl combine:
- 4 egg whites
- 2 teaspoons vanilla - or 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp almond extract (or your other favorite flavoring)
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 1/3 cup water
- 1/8 cup oil
Add to dry ingredients and mix just until combined...DO NOT OVERMIX!
Coat pans with non stick spray or parchment paper. Bake at 325 degrees for 50 minutes for a large sheet cake or 30-40 minutes for smaller cakes.
This recipe makes one 11x15 cake or two 9 square inch cakes.
